Inspired by the reusable adhesive used to hold climbing skins on skis, the PINSTOP emerged from a desire to have an aesthetic, secure "rock stop" that works.

Zaidee Fuller, inventor of the PINSTOP, was founder and director of the Orchestra Program in the Teton County School District for ten years. Active in a string quartet, she teaches cello in a private studio at the Center for the Arts in Jackson, Wyoming.
